By Staff | Feb 27, 2015

Children who eat breakfast at school start the day ready to learn-reflected in higher test scores and better classroom behavior. However only half of the children who eat lunch at school also eat school breakfast, according to the Food Research and Action Council.

To garner increased participation in the School Breakfast Program, Rugby Public schools will recognize National School Breakfast Week. Slated for March 2-6, 2015, National School Breakfast Week is a week-long celebration aimed at increasing awareness of the School Breakfast Program among students and parents.

The 2015 National School Breakfast Week theme, “Make the Grade with School Breakfast” reminds everyone in the school community parents, students, administrators that a healthy school breakfast sets students up for a day of learning and academic success. The Rugby Public Schools Breakfast Program is available to all students every weekday morning. Your child can eat breakfast every day or only occasionally. Every school breakfast served meets federal nutrition standards limiting fat, calories, sodium.

School Breakfast is not only healthy and convenient on those busy weekday mornings but it’s also affordable. The cost of School Breakfast is $1.70 with the reduced rate being $ .30. Breakfast at Ely Elementary starts at 8:10 am everyday

except 8:20 on Wednesdays. Breakfast at RHS starts at 8:00 am and 8:10 on Wednesdays.
